Ageing in Australia Expo 2017

The Ageing in Australia Expo is a unique Victorian event connecting older people and their families to aged care providers and services.

This free public event, held at Melbourne Town Hall in April 2017, provided an opportunity for people to find out about the range of support services available to them as they age, and ask questions of aged care services, government departments, peak organisations and ethnic community organisations relating to their care and wellbeing.

expo2017-1An extensive promotional campaign targeting older people from culturally and linguistically diverse background ensured that details of the Expo reached as many people as possible. The fantastic response from community members highlighted the critical need for health and aged care information in languages other than English. Exhibitors were encourage to hand out multilingual information and interpreters representing 13 languages were available on the day to assist people to navigate the Expo.

We extend our thanks to our Sponsors: City of Melbourne, Polaron Language Services, Department of Health Victoria, Benetas and the Department of Health.
